Breaking with President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton's campaign on Friday said she would sign the controversial bill allowing families of victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to sue Saudi Arabia in U.S. courts, The Hill reported.

 

"Clinton continues to support the efforts by Sen. [Chuck] Schumer [D-N.Y.] and his colleagues in congress to secure the ability of 9/11 families and other victims of terror to hold accountable those responsible," spokesman Jesse Lehrich said Friday, according to Yahoo News.

 

"She would sign this legislation if it came to her desk."

 

The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) will allow families of victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to sue Saudi Arabia's government using the U.S. court system, the Wall Street journal reported.

 

 

Saudi Arabia has long been accused of supporting the hijackers, but the Saudi leadership denies any link.

 

Obama believes the relationship between the United States and the Saudis, who are key U.S. allies, may be affected after the veto.

 

 

Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she would oppose Obama and vote to override the veto.

 

"I've worked with these families a very long time and I think they should have their day in court," she said.
